Hi Mary 

Yes, I’ve seen and have purchased a Brailliant BI 14. It arrived a couple of 
weeks ago, and I’ve been getting on well with it. It can either act as a 
Braille display and keyboard for your I-device, or it can act as a totally 
independent note taker. 

Where interacting with an I-device is concerned, it seems to work very well and 
does everything you’d expect it to. I do have a couple of criticisms of it, but 
they are more like things that HumanWare could do to further improve the device 
as opposed to actual criticisms, and I’ll certainly be feeding those back.

I was meant to be having a day’s training on it, but that’s been postponed for 
now as the units have been recalled (something to do with the battery). So 
hopefully once that’s happened I’ll know more about it.
